Skip to comments.Trump's Either Telling Us We Have Superweapons More Powerful Than Nukes...
Posted on 09/16/2019 8:06:58 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
Twice in the last month, the President of the United States has claimed that the Pentagon has weapons even more powerful than nuclear weapons, with the ability to easily kill millions. He is either bluffing, confused, or is incapable of understanding the difference between conventional and nuclear weapons.
President Donald Trump made the claim during remarks to commemorate the 18th anniversary of the September 11th attacks in New York, Washington, and Pennsylvania.
According to The Washington Post, Trump told an audience, emphasis mine:
The last four days, we have hit our enemy harder than they have ever been hit before, and that will continue, Trump said, apparently referring to the Afghanistan war and drawing applause from the crowd. And if for any reason they come back to our country, we will go wherever they are and use power the likes of which the United States has never used before and Im not even talking about nuclear power. They will never have seen anything like what will happen to them.

There are other weapons besides nukes that can kill millions, even if indirectly.
Rods from God.
Is there seriously anyone who hasn’t assumed that we have had those since Reagan?
Was the Trump tweet about the Iranian missile site hinting at this?
I thought they couldn’t keep up with the space defense program.
I thought he just meant we didn’t need nukes to take them out.
More powerful than a nuke.
I’d hate to meet that weapon.
We’ve got weapons for interplanetary war but we only have one planet :)
Gotta admit, I’m interested and confused.
WWE style braggadocio.
Still, I remember when a nuclear test area in North Korea “collapsed” suddenly.
Long story short this scientist relayed how back in the 1970s he was on a team that developed a ship mounted laser that could and did knock a fighter plane out of the sky.
Where did Trump say we have weapons more powerful than nuclear? Did I miss the memo?
Pop an EMP in Tehran and let them deal with 23 million people with no power or communications.
Look above you.
Depends on who the bad guys are. Moozlems-announce that we don’t discriminate against sunni or shia. We will take them all out. New ballad: ALL OUT WITHOUT FALLOUT.
I read the article, but just because he said he said we have weapons more powerful than have used before doesn’t, to me, mean they’re more powerful than hydrogen bombs...which we’ve never used.
If I’m missing something, please feel free to straighten me out.
When considering the entire package, delivery system, enemy avoidance, navigation and targeting, and warhead impact, the nuclear weapon is only one part. I am certain we are constantly improving all aspects, and it is good to have an enemy who wonders just how bad it might be. Give Trump some credit for the correct attitude here.
The funny thing...
Is that Americans wonder why they are not mentioned in the revelations...
When it seems rather clear that you are pretty much the main act...
“Where did Trump say we have weapons more powerful than nuclear? Did I miss the memo?”
It’s a nonsense “article”.
Meant to be anti-Trump to boot.
The sentence in bold is coherent even if the “power” he refers to are capabilities less “powerful” than a nuclear weapon.
“Give Trump some credit for the correct attitude here.”
I do every day. I just think in this case his words are being misinterpreted, which often happens.
“Its a nonsense article.
